This webinar provides a practical overview to the Collaborative Problem Solving approach to working with children who lack the skill to behave well. All children, parents and teachers want to do well. But even with the best intentions, unpleasant confrontations may arise at home or in school with children who have social, emotional  and behavioral challenges. These children can be exasperating to parents, and teachers who are involved in dealing with the consequences of children’s inability to meet expectations.
